Smilodon 10G EVO / 5MP


SMILODON 10G EVO is a highly customizable and user-programmable FPGA-based high-speed smart camera featuring a high-performance FPGA. It is a camera with a Xilinx Zynq FPGA, high-speed imaging sensor and a 1 or 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It includes high-performance ARM System-on-Chip (SoC) technology, combined with high-speed industrial Gpixel imaging sensors.

Smilodon 10G EVO includes full customizable and user-programmable open-reference design for a high-speed FPGA-based camera and application development system. Its emphasis is on an open hardware/software development model, high-frame rates, real-time image processing on FPGA and modern graphical user interface support on the PC side.

A suite of versatile and high-performance tools for Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ SoC FPGA is used to develop algorithms and process data in realtime. Images are acquired by 4 different Gpixel GMAX25xx sensors with up to 48x LVDS interface (46 Gbps), achieving brilliant images at a very high speed. The on-board 4GB DDR4 memory with 19 GB/s of bandwidth enables usage of complex buffered image processing.

The reference design can be easily edited with standard Xilinx Vivado tools. OptoMotive´s custom IP cores seamlessly integrate inside the Xilinx Vivado toolchain. A large portion of the FPGA (PL) is free for the programming and development of new algorithms or the implementation of additional IP cores. The 1.2 GHz Quad Core ARM Cortex A53 Programmable Subsystem runs a Linux OS with a custom-made EVO control and streaming stack (including Zero-copy TCP/IP stack). The SoC also includes dual 600MHz Cortex R5 processors which are free for user data processing. User applications or custom data post-processing can easily be added to the existing design.


  • Laser triangulation - with a ready-made Peak detector on-board image processing core;
  • Motion capture - with a ready-made BLOB detector or Running Length Encoder (RLE) on-board image processing core;
  • Industrial process automation - to count, detect, check, verify, read, inspect and test different products, levels, components, etc. at incredible speed and
  • Industrial quality control: to inspect defects, cracks or surface blemishes, size, position, dimension and color, foreign objects, quality General R&D.
